MetaWars is filled with action, mystery, and an adventure that will take you on a thrilling ride through two intense worlds.
I admit to being reluctant to delve into what I thought would be “yet another story set in a computerised dystopian world”. I was soon proved wrong. This first instalment, “Fight for the future”, is set in a future – perhaps not too far-off – London, in which our worst nightmares of global warming have taken effect and the greater population is living in poverty, coping with oil, food and water rations; but there is an escape: the Metasphere. In this virtual world, everyone is represented by an avatar and can carry out a dual life with amazing abilities. A fast-paced read, MetaWars offers much real-life comparison, such as climate change, political chaos and – of course – teen relationships. While being in the Metasphere is like living inside a game, it soon becomes a terrifying reality as hero Jonah is launched into a battle between the Guardians and the Millenials, the factions warring for control. MetaWarsis perfect for the action lover – and those who spend more time with a computer than a book.
